Did I forget to tell you about my flight?

This was the first time I flew Etihad Airways and I must admit that I was a bit nervous at trying the services of a new airline. But I needn’t have feared. The experience was amazing. I had upgraded to business class because I believe that if I cannot spend on my own comfort, what is the point of working so hard to earn a living?

And boy am I glad I did. The lounge at Abu Dhabi airport was a dream and when I boarded the plane at Abu Dhabi, I was amazed to see that I had a private alcove. Not only was the seat comfortable, it turned into a bed, had an amazing footrest and the massage service the seat provided was just what my aching back needed. Talk about being spoilt! 🙂

Lots of storage. A place to connect my laptop and my iPhone as well as lots of storage space for my bags and my shoes.

Choices of movies and television sitcoms and games galore all the way.

When I landed in Cairo, a young man met me at the plane. He looked at my passport and smiled. He said I had an Egyptian name – Jehan was the name of former President Nasser’s wife you may remember.

He whizzed me through immigration and health, said that my luggage had actually not been checked in all the way to Sharm el Sheikh because there needed to be customs formalities taken care of at Cairo. He helped me with my luggage and escorted me to the Domestic terminal where I checked in on Egypt Air to Sharm el Sheikh. This personalized service was courtesy of IGF and Etihad I guess but nonetheless it was a warm and comfortable welcome to Egypt.

    Egypt’s a really nice place. Though I was shocked at arrival when I saw just how poor and congested Cairo was!

    practical question : do these alcoves limit your ability to converse with other passengers? ive met some very interesting ppl on planes and become friends in some cases..i would not want to lose that, tho its almost worth it for that power outlet 😉 jk

    Wow, seems very nice! Just wondering, was the upgrade very expensive? And did you book in business class or was it offered to you during check in?
